The Wisconsin School Garden Initiative encourages you to grab a camera and hop on your bike for this picturesque ride featuring youth gardens on Madison's north side. In addition to being great scenery, youth gardens offer a host of benefits. They provide access to fresh fruits and vegetables, create opportunities to be active outside, and introduce children to ecological principles. This route highlights three youth gardens: Gompers Elementary, Lake View Elementary, and the Troy Kids' Garden that all combine produce, education, and fun!
Artabout is a curated arts route exploring art museums, artist studios, and art events around Minneapolis. The route takes you on a scenic ride starting along the Mississippi River where you'll cross the renowned Stone Arch Bridge, see part of the University of Minnesota campus, ride through popular neighborhoods such as Uptown and Northeast, and experience parts of our lovely Midtown Greenway and Cedar Lake bike trail. Along the route, you'll explore a variety of arts stops ranging from renovated warehouse buildings converted into galleries and artist studios to an outdoor arts sculpture garden. I enjoy each of the highlighted stops for their uniqueness in the Minneapolis arts scene and I volunteer at a few of the organizations which is a fun opportunity to meet like-minded people and help support the arts community.
